Jay Cutler returns to practice

NFL_cutler1.jpgIn a move that likely means he’ll be cleared to absorb another series of sacks on Sunday at Carolina, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has returned to practice, only three days after suffering a concussion against the Giants.

The news comes from the Bears’ official twitter feed, via Larry Mayer of ChicagoBears.com.

Once a player has been diagnosed with a concussion, he can’t practice or play until cleared to do so by doctors.

It’s good news for the Bears, if they can fix whatever it was that caused Cutler to be sacked nine games in one half, a feat made even more amazing by the absence of Winston Justice from the lineup.

    ________________________________
    Whew–getting sacked 9 GAMES in one half is an amazing feat in itself. How did he survive that?

    was he seen “walking” to the right practice field?
    I cant believe the story with the biggest halftime outburst from this past weekend was Randy Moss…
    It should have been Cutler (if he could even talk). The Bears O-Line almost got him killed!

  4. CookieFlash says: Oct 6, 2010 3:31 PM

    did he at least go to the rught sideline when practice was finished?

  5. ninjapleazee says: Oct 6, 2010 3:32 PM

    ummm.. Winston Justice plays for Eagles….

  6. smo05d says: Oct 6, 2010 3:32 PM

    how is that allowed?? shouldn’t you NOT play the following week after you’ve sustained a concussion?? Who’s he going to lose his job to–Todd Collins? So it’s not like he has to fear sitting out like Kolb and potentially losing his spot. This is a dumb move.

    it’s good news for the panthers more than it is the bears probably. they’ll need cutler out there if the D is gonna rack up as many sacks as Pep will. carolina being 0 and 4 means Pep will have a monster game-he brings the pain when absolutely nothing is on the line. he’ll get 2 sacks, force a fumble and block a field goal on sunday

  8. grendel says: Oct 6, 2010 3:35 PM

    Cutler should be fine… The Panthers only have 4 sacks on the season.

  9. rjgreen3 says: Oct 6, 2010 3:35 PM

    Did he really have a concussion or was he poutting like he normally does when things don’t go his way? Were the Bears covering for him? This may have been an excuse just to get out of the game. Cutler is not a thorough bred and will fight against all odds to win a game, he is a whinny b*tch! He will make a bad throw and then blame it on the receiver. He still hasn’t grown up yet!

  10. Iceman says: Oct 6, 2010 3:38 PM

    We don’t know exactly what is going on with Cutler at practice today. The media is allowed to watch 10 minutes of individual drills, and Cutler was throwing some passes and participating in those drills.
    But we don’t know if he will be in the 7 on 7 drills or the full-squad time.
    There’s still a good chance he doesn’t play at Carolina this weekend.

  11. PED'S ARE GOOD FOR SPORTS says: Oct 6, 2010 3:38 PM

    Now I got it. Very funny, but you might want to substitute Jason Peters now as Justice is probably the Eagles best OL now and Peters sucks.

  12. mekono says: Oct 6, 2010 3:39 PM

    I guess that either jay is a quick healer, or that he wasn’t all that banged up in the first place.
    What else could explain Cutler getting passed the battery of tests required after a player suffers a concussion?
    Kolb sat a week after a hit in week one. The Eagles were questioned for the way they handled it. Do the Bears receive the same scrutiny?

  13. BigBear123 says: Oct 6, 2010 3:48 PM

    Shuffled the entire line around to try and cover for Williams going down. Hopefully they are settled in now so Jay Cutler’s 2010 MVP season can continue without any more interruptions.

  14. DukeBunswalker says: Oct 6, 2010 3:52 PM

    Does anyone think Cutler really had a concussion??? Come on, dude was just embarrassed and didn’t want to face anymore humiliation. Way to put the team first.

  15. Laj Mahal says: Oct 6, 2010 3:53 PM

    Why does Florio continue to always try and crack jokes?
    From what I’ve heard Winston Justice is the best player on the Eagles o-line this year, which includes All-Pro LT Jason Peters (who I’ve heard has been the closest thing to horrible this year).
    Give the man a break, he was a rookie and let up a bunch of sacks to the returning SB Champs in his FIRST CAREER START.
    The real joke is that you haven’t been fired by NBC yet

  16. Ralph says: Oct 6, 2010 3:57 PM

    he just had his bell rung

  17. Wartooth says: Oct 6, 2010 4:01 PM

    After 3 days, all of the test showed no brain activity…They figured that was normal for him, so they sent him back to work.
    Jay Cutler= Kerry Collins 2.0

  18. Plankshelmet says: Oct 6, 2010 4:03 PM

    The good news for Jay is that Jerry Angelo as negotaiated the purchase of the Phoenix Rescue Capsule being used to free the trapped Chilean miners. It will now be deployed by the Bears to save Jay from certain death when he is getting repeatedly pummeled by defenders due to his pile of crap O line compiled of 7th round picks, undrafted free agents and one washed up Samoan with anger issues. WAY TO GO JERRY AND TEDDY !!!

  19. djrother says: Oct 6, 2010 4:12 PM

    Well, maybe he got some throwing sense knocked into him.

  20. redwhite123 says: Oct 6, 2010 4:18 PM

    Cutler did not sustain a concussion….something happened at halftime..he pouted, whined, complained, something….decided to not go back out there and be further embarrassed. You heard Urlacher.
    Even heard Deion Sanders call him out about during the post game…he’s a punk.

  21. oxycode30 says: Oct 6, 2010 4:29 PM

    The Bears O-line played reasonably well against Dallas (after a rough opening quarter) and against GB and Detroit and I don’t expect a repeat of the Giants debacle again this year. Anyone who thinks Carolina has a chance on Sunday is delusional. Bears will begin a nice win streak on Sunday and Cutler – who clearly wasn’t terribly concussed against NY – will bounce back nicely. When the Bears enter post-season play with a record of 13-3 I would hope some of the naysaying so-called experts will have given them their props… but somehow I don’t expect it.

  22. Tony B says: Oct 6, 2010 4:45 PM

    Two things to say on this..
    One, “In a move that likely means he’ll be cleared to absorb another series of sacks on Sunday at Carolina.” This was totally Un necessary and did not need to be said.. Yes we all know you hate the Chicago Bears.
    Two, How on earth did you ever get a job doing this Mike? You don’t even know who plays where and for what teams.

  23. seatofmypants says: Oct 6, 2010 4:56 PM

    1. The reference to Winston Justice was because he gave up 6 sacks ot the giants his rookie season. It was not about him playing for the Bears.
    2. Cutler was not concussed. He needed an excuse to come out of the game. That’s why he has “healed” so fast.

  24. 18ALLDAY says: Oct 6, 2010 4:57 PM

    Cutler is a little “soft” I have never seen such bad/sad body language from a “star” QB in my life. I thought I heard local Chicago radio saying that he was having blood sugar issues, so along with the hard hits couldn’t shake the cobwebs out of his head.

  25. Cecil says: Oct 6, 2010 5:24 PM

    “When the Bears enter post-season play with a record of 13-3 I would hope some of the naysaying so-called experts will have given them their props… but somehow I don’t expect it.”
    Wow. Slow down on the giggly pills.

  26. Nard100 says: Oct 6, 2010 5:41 PM

    I’m sure he was having blood sugar issues. He was having the blood and sugar beat out of him. I don’t blame him for getting out of that miasma and letting the back-up and the back-back-up take some shots so he could be out there this week. ROTFL.

  27. doncannon says: Oct 6, 2010 5:51 PM

    Anyone who says Cutler is soft has obviously not seen him play.

  28. GB3Pack4 says: Oct 6, 2010 6:38 PM

    This seems suspect – returning Cutler to the field so quickly. For anyone to absorb 9 sacks, one a head-bouncer with a subsequent concussion dx, to return to play in three days – truly it makes me wonder if they’re being as stringent in their efforts to protect the player as they should be.

    +++++++++++++++++
    Looking at that picture of Cutler makes me think he IS pretty soft…. he has a FAT face!

  30. Qoojo says: Oct 6, 2010 9:06 PM

    There is no way he is over a concussion that fast.

  31. smarterthanyou says: Oct 6, 2010 10:47 PM

    Honestly people…reading through some of these posts is such a show. Most of it is people just regurgitating what they hear “experts” (used in the loosest of forms) like Florio spout off. Everyone calls Cutler a crybaby. Why? The gets sacked and just gets right up and walks back to huddle and calls the next play. His toughness should not be questioned. Decision making, sure, sometimes, but toughness, no.
    To all the doctors out there. There are different grades of concussions. Some take a few days to recover from, and others can take several months to a year. Stop trying to speculate that he never had a concussion and stop deciding that it’s too soon to recover. He had a concussion. The guy started walking over to the wrong sideline after one of the sacks.
    Please think before you waste space on these posts.

  32. Patroncos says: Oct 7, 2010 2:43 AM

    Hmm…..Dallas almost killed him in the first quarter; Green Bay players were fined for trying to take his head off; The Giants pounded him in EVERY passing play…..and some cretin mutants accuse him of being a “cry baby”……(they must be Broncos fans still ticked he left)……
    Orton is and will always be MEDIOCRE….he will NEVER take the Patroncos to the Super Bowl…..now, go back to your cribs and put on your Tebow shirts before bed……
